Nestled within a mature tree lined plot boasting two thirds of an acre, we are thrilled to bring to the market this picturesque detached period farmhouse dating back to the mid 17th century. Perfectly located in the semi-rural village of Croft and beautifully set back off Cross Lane within private grounds, this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a substantial family home which oozes character and space throughout.
Accessed via a sweeping cobbled pathway which leads to the driveway, this imposing family residence will be sure to impress any visitors and suit most growing families. The accommodation is very versatile and offers a range of options for families due to the extensive footprint. A viewing will reveal a welcoming entrance hall which flows into the utility/ room with a cloakroom/ WC off and a separate storage cupboard which houses the boiler, leading into the fitted kitchen which boasts a comprehensive range of cream shaker style wall and base units with complementary solid oak worktops over including a breakfast bar and a range of built in appliances which include a black inset sink with a mixer tap and drainer, fridge/ freezer, dishwasher, pull-out larder cupboard and space for a range cooker with a stainless steel extractor hood over. The kitchen flows open plan into the impressive 'hub of the home' family room which has two sets of double doors leading onto the rear patio area with ample windows and five additional velux windows letting floods of natural light in. Beautifully tiled travertine flooring completes the rustic yet stylish look. There are three further reception rooms to the ground floor living space, both with feature stone fireplaces housing multi-fuel burners and exposed beams to the ceiling, the formal lounge being situated to the rear of the property with a large understairs storage cupboard and windows to two elevations, and the sitting room to the front of the property with a fabulous varnished wooden floor and an adjacent study which also comprises a chimney stack with a hole-in-the-wall feature currently utilised as a wood store with stripped wooden flooring. The inner hallway provides access to the lounge and staircase leading to the first floor.
To the first floor there are four substantial double bedrooms all with windows which look out onto open fields or farmland beyond with the main bedroom and bedroom three also benefitting from focal point, period cast iron fireplaces. There is a generous landing with a stunning stained glass pane to the side aspect and a spacious family bathroom fitted with a four-piece suite in white with chrome fittings and complementary tiling to the walls.
Externally the property offers ample parking to the side of the property and the breath-taking grounds are extremely private with your only neighbour being the adjacent field to the side. The gardens span to the front, side and rear and are mostly laid to lawn with mature borders and a large patio area off the sunroom/ family room which provide outside entertaining options for sunnier days and evenings.
There is also the added benefit of a sizeable former chicken shed and by sizeable we are talking 32ft by 17ft, which is in need of repair but on a solid foundations and is ripe for a buyer looking to add their own workspace, outside bar/ games room, playhouse for the children, the options are endless!
It is rare that properties of such grandeur, size and bursting with character come to the market in Croft village, so register your early interest for this hidden gem to avoid disappointment!
